Suck It Up And Take A Winter Class

Taking a winter class isn't all as bad as it seems.

Suck It Up And Take A Winter Class

Winter is soon approaching. Sure, this semester is ending and the holidays are coming up and we will want to do anything but study. But once the holidays pass, a lot of us will be back in school taking a winter class, doing what we should be doing.

It is going to be tedious and a lot of us aren’t going to want to suck it up and do it, but sometimes we have to just do it. Basically, a lot of us want to graduate on time—or even early—so this is really the best option that we have. Plus, at least in my experience, winter classes are typically easier because, yeah, it is a lot of work in a short amount of time, but it is also easier in the sense that you are focused on just one topic and working towards that goal.

In that sense, it becomes a challenge for some; although, at least it is over in three weeks! You will be in school mode when school starts again as well, which is always good since you will still have a focus and drive.

Sometimes, it is just the right and responsible thing to do.

Yes, who wants to take more classes than they have to in a year? A lot of people seem to think that it's just too much work, but it wouldn't exist if it were impossible.

Winter classes always help people to graduate on time—which is the real goal in college. Plus, you and the professor understand that it's winter, you don't have a lot of time to do the work, and you are working as hard as you possibly can in this short amount of time to understand their class. Three weeks of suffering versus a semester worth of suffering; that's how I look at it. Especially if it is a class I don't really want to take or even if it is a class that I'd like; at least I get to fully focus on it for a few weeks.

What I'm trying to say is that if you needed a word of encouragement to take a winter class, well, here I am. It might be pricey and take a toll on your wallet, but it will be worth it in the end, because instead of taking 18 credits your last semester, you could be taking a doable 15. This is what it really comes down to, right? If you can afford it, definitely do it.

Suck it up, buttercup. Get that work done. And you'll have three credits in three weeks totally worth it!

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
